Since our inception our CEO and President have been involved in animal rescue shelter activities. Following their lead our team members are involved in supporting a lot of great causes.
We connect with our customers on many business levels and also find we are connected by the challenges life throws in our collective paths. Whether it is support of open source projects, donating CPU / GPU time for global researchers working on their thesis to find cures for diseases or other important projects for humanity, donating a printer to a school while on a project in Turkey, helping to feed the homeless during the Holidays, coaching a special Olympics basketball team or sponsoring a customer’s walk to raise funds for juvenile diabetes our team is always willing to lend a hand.
Our staff volunteers and supports the following diverse activities and organizations in the hope that our individual and collective efforts will make this world a better place to live.
ASPCA, Best Friends Animal Society, Doctors Without Borders, Red Cross, American Cancer Society, Special Olympics, Make a Wish, Polar Express, UNICEF, Juvenile Diabetes Association, Wounded Warrior Project, American Legion, VFW, Ohio Linux Fest, Society for Creative Anachronism and various community charities through donations of airline miles and cash donations.

THE QUALITY OF MERCY
The quality of mercy is not strained.
It droppeth as the gentle rain from heaven
Upon the place beneath. It is twice blest:
It blesseth him that gives and him that takes.
Tis mightiest in the mightiest; it becomes
The throned monarch better than his crown.
His scepter shows the force of temporal power,
The attribute to awe and majesty,
Wherein doth sit the dread and fear of kings.
But mercy is above this sceptered sway;
It is enthroned in the hearts of kings;
It is an attribute of God himself;
And earthly power doth then show like God's
When mercy seasons justice.
